It Is Spring

Hummingbird at the feeder Easter morning

Tears from heaven wash the trees,

they’re blow-dried in a cooling breeze,

while chickadees and sparrows sing

telling all the world, “it’s spring”

Once more the woods are painted bright,

the day goes on for half the night,

Mother Nature has her fling-

new life comes forth and it is spring.

Tulips, children, puddles, grass,

Mother Nature’s looking glass,

love and laughter on the wing,

a new beginning, it is spring.

    It has been a very popular poem first published in the Peninsula Times newspaper in March of 1976.
    In my book “PS” 1978. It was used on an overhead at church once, a friend did it in calligraphy. It was published in The local newspaper in March 2007 as well as on my blog about 3 times. 😉
